On the 8th of September 2016, my daughter Rebecca lost her battle with cancer. Her strength, determination and relentless hope and positivity was infectious and anyone who knew her could see this straight away.
Rebecca would want to be remembered, not as the 'cancer patient', she wouldn't want sympathy, but instead would want everyone to remember her for being herself, for her personality and the love she had for her family, friends, and anyone she met.
There were a lot of charities that supported us as a family over the last 2 years, from Friends of the Cancer Centre (Renee Reid our Clinical Nurse Specialist), Cancer Fund for Children (Lynn or Community Specialist), Boom foundation and more - from the bottom of our hearts, we can't thank you enough.
We want to thank CLIC Sargent in particular, who provided us with Simon Darby our Social Worker who was there from day one to support us, listen to us and help us where needed. They also provided me with a room in Amy's House, the CLIC Sargent Home from Home opposite the City Hospital. It meant I was only ever a few minutes away from Rebecca and could cook her the food she liked whenever she wanted it. Without CLIC Sargent and the other charities, our experience would have been very different.
